I am also working with the Cobden High School in Section 24 and the Johnston City High School in Section 25. "aron Stover at Cobden and Chad Payne at Johnston City are the new industrial technology teachers at each school, but both are certified in agricultural education. I hope that these 2 schools offer at least one agricultural course for the 03-04 school year.

Currently, 68 high schools in District 5 have an approved agricultural education program. Potentially by the start of the 03-04 school year, 74 schools(an increase of 6) could have an approved program.
